Water as we all know is a essential part of our body. Apart from carrying nutrients and oxygen to cells, it also cleanses our body from waste. Therefore, it is necessary for us to consume a certain amount of water everyday. But with too much work and our hectic daily schedules we forget this very basic need of ours, to drink water. The easiest way to remember this is getting a drink water reminder every now and then.
This article will cover free Windows 10 drink water reminder apps which will help you by reminding you to drink water. By the help of these apps you can track your daily water intake by entering how much water you drank. You can simply set reminders at different time intervals and you will be reminded when its time for you to have some water.
Let’s look at these Windows 10 drink water reminder apps below.

After choosing that you will land on a screen like the one shown in the above screenshot. The screen will have a water meter which will monitor the amount of water you have had.

Just choose the amount of water you had and it will be added to the water meter.

On the settings page you can change the default water consumption or daily intake which is set to 3 liters by default. You can also change the reminder time, by default the app shows reminder every 30 minutes. You can increase or decrease the reminder time as per your choice. You can also change the metric system from this page. You can turn on the quiet hours rule which is basically your sleeping time. During this time you will not receive any reminders from the app. You can enter the starting and ending time for the quiet time. The paid pro version of the app also lets you sync your app data to cloud, so you can access it from anywhere.
The history/statistics option will show you your water intake data in a bar graph form. You can see your water intake for the current week and the past week as well.

Water Reminders is a app where you can enter you water intake each time you have water. The interface of the app can be seen in the screenshot above. Unfortunately all the options in this app are not working. From the top tool bar, only the first two icon seems to be working. The first icon with a clock is the page displayed above where you can enter the amount of water you had. There are three water quantities displayed on screen from where you can choose the amount you had. When you choose the water meter displayed in the center of the screen will start filling up. According to the app one should have at least 4 liters of water in a day. The second icon on the toolbar with a moon on it is for recording your sleep time. Here you have to enter the time you sleep at and the time you wake up at. The remaining three icons don’t seem to be working right now.
These are the 4 apps that I found in the Windows 10 store to help you with your daily water intake. You can keep a track of how much water you have had and how much you still have to drink. Getting water reminders can be very helpful with our busy schedules. Try these apps out and stay hydrated.
